Local adult hospice invites you to join in the St David’s Hospice Great Orme Goat Challenge.
Aptly named after the world-famous goats who roam the town’s headland, the month long challenge is to complete as many loops of the Great Orme as you can during the month of August.
How you complete the challenge is your choice, there are many routes on the Orme you can be as creative as you wish.
Events co-ordinator Rhian Jacobs explains:
“Now the days are longer and hopefully the weather drier, the Great Orme is a lovely place to exercise and explore. After being separated from friends and family for such a long time, this is a great opportunity to do something together and raise funds for the Hospice.
You can walk, run, cycle, hop or skip whichever way you like to do it, the choice is yours.”
St David’s Hospice is a local charity providing hospice care to adult patients living with life-limiting illnesses across Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey.
COVID-19 has hit the charity’s finances hard. Overnight, fundraised income activity dried up, a loss of over £1million. Now the charity is looking for the communities support to help them in their fight for survival.
You can take on the Great Orme Goat challenge on your own, as a couple or as a family. For every £100 raised you will receive a free bespoke ‘Mostyn the goat’ soft toy! The Limited edition super soft plush toy is the latest item in the Hospice’s goat merchandise and is wearing a St David’s Hospice Goat Tee shirt plus has the words ‘ Lockdown 2020’ on its front foot.
Nine-month old, Nancy and her family are the first to sign up for the challenge. It will be the first time whole family will be together after lockdown and shielding. They will be walking the Orme together, proudly wearing their Hospice t-shirts, with an aim to raise £100 for the Hospice so that Nancy can receive her very own ‘Mostyn’ goat toy which will be a memento of these very strange times in years to come.
To register your place and to be in with a chance of receiving the ‘Mostyn the Goat’ Soft toy go to www.stdavidshospice.org.uk/event/greatormegoatchallenge2020/
